Every word counts

Claire Hill Helps Make Edinburgh Fringe Accessible

Over 20 shows at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe will be made accessible by Claire Hill Realtime Reporting.

Through working with us at Stagetext and directly with venues, Claire has extensive experience providing live subtitles for theatre and other cultural events. She has worked on plays, spoken-word festivals, author readings, museum and gallery talks, live comedy and stadium events.

This year Clair will be taking on a huge challenge of providing subtitles at the largest arts festival in the world - the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Now in its 70th year, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe celebrates arts and culture in Scotland’s capital with thousands of performers taking to hundreds of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. From established names to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children's shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and many more.

Claire Hill will be subtitling the following shows:
